Based on your comments, you seem to be more of a PS3 defender than a fanboy. I really don't mind fanboys when it comes to jumping up and down about the system they own. I get upset and go all fanboy(defender) when someone is talking crap or spreading FUD about the 360.

No doubt it's better being a gamer and appreciating all the systems for what they are.

Unfortunately, it seems some people believe that defending either console makes you a fanboy. You know, because saying anything good about one means you're saying something negative about the other or some such.

I genuinely believe that most fanboys are simply in denial, that their investment didn't get them EVERY single good game going, that another, "inferior" system actually has a few good games as well and thus must justify their purchase by berating anyone that disagrees with them.

I believe each console should be perceived by its own merits and shortcomings. With that said, there is a difference between fanboy, and gamer/fan. Fanboy's feel the need to justify their purchase and bring down others in the process. They're console purchase is in a way tied to their sense of identity and pride. Gamer's/fan's on the other hand enjoy gaming in every facet of the word. It is more of a hobby and less of an obsession with an inanimate object. Granted, everyone has preferences, gamers don't need to validate their purchase. I would also speculate that the majority of fanboy's are adolescent boys. There is a certain aspect of irrationality that in no way speaks of maturity on their part. This is in no way universally true.

Also, I agree that defending a game or a console does not make you a fanboy. If your logic is good, you shouldn't have to explain yourself. I for one am tired of all the silly one sentence fanboy exclamations that incite everyone to insult everyone.

There is nothing wrong with defending your favorite console. Fanboys take it too far though. If you love Killzone 2, great. But when someone says that it is the "best game ever", before it is even released, that is taking things too far. Trolling articles about a console that you don't even own in order to talk nonsense about a competing game, or worse, make fun a particular person's name, is also crossing the line. As is anonymously accusing any media outlet of conspiracy if they score a certain game below what the fanboy considers "acceptable". People who do those things have ZERO credibility.
